MURRAY TO MOYNE
On the weekend of April 1st to 2nd 2023, Team 101 will be participating in the Murray to Moyne (M2M) Cycle Relay from Echuca (Murray River) to Port Fairy (Moyne River). Apart from the challenge and scenery, the ride is also about raising funds to support the student welfare programs at Altona North Primary School.The ride is a 520km relay event that is conducted over 2 days. The participants and support crew pay all their own expenses (registration, food, travel & accommodation) and all funds raised go directly to the school to give underprivileged students the opportunity to participate in events that develop resilience, a sense of achievement, leadership and respect in a multi-cultural and socially diverse community.The funds raised will allow the school to provide opportunities for students to attend camps, swimming lessons, excursions, breakfast club, life skills program, incursions, cyber safety workshops, leadership workshops and a host of extra curricula experiences which they would otherwise be deprived of taking part in.The M2M fundraising also allows the school to provide clothing and food hampers to homeless and families facing difficulties. The school supports its local community both inside and outside of the classroom. We have strong links with local community clubs, kindergartens, Woolworths Millers Junction, Altona Gate, Mirvac, Mecwacare Squires Place Aged Care Facility, Altona RSL and Bunnings Altona.The recent period of COVID has provided even higher levels of disadvantage to those in need and now more than previously we need to provide much needed support in order to help close the gap.This year we are aiming to raise $15,000 to go directly back to our student’s welfare, social and emotional needs.Your support in this annual fundraising event is very much appreciated and the smiles these funds raised put on our student’s faces is priceless.Please follow the link here to our fundraising page.Thank you for your generous support.GO TEAM 101!
